Not much to say today. I'm finding it easier to remember to either (a) find the time to pick up the camera at opportune moments or (b) make some time during the day to concentrate on photo-taking. I did an entire study of my daughter's accordion and case earlier today. I am quite proud of a number of the photos I took and will likely post them as a set on Flickr.

I think the best one is the last one. I knew today had to be an accordion photo since it was her first day of lessons. She's been over the moon that she has the chance to take these lessons and her enthusiasm hasn't died since her lesson this afternoon. I was really excited this afternoon when her teacher played "Moon River" (a long-standing lullaby in our house) on the accordion and my daughter was moved to accompany her on the piano (she has no idea how to play) that was in the room...

I hear the blog went offline for a while...I've been using an old work e-mail address as my account name for a long time and I imagine the address has now expired, causing Blogger to freak out and shut everything down until I gave them a real e-mail address. Everything should be in working order now.

I'm feeling very...wintery...lately. Like I want to just gather up my loved ones and tumble into a torpor under the slanted ceiling of our third floor bedroom.

Alas, work and school call two of our number forth, and so shuttling, cooking and shopping cannot be stricken from my to-do list, despite the fact that I carry two fifteen-pound phoretic organisms with me everywhere I go. And though the snow that we are expecting this winter is bound to slow me even further than my rapidly-growing children, I was pleased to see so much of it on the weekend and further pleased that it stayed, which it so rarely does in this city any more.

Starting Fresh

No, I don't expect to post a photo a day from here on in, but I had a spare moment, so here it is...

I'm Still Here

I know I've been absent for a long time (almost two months since I've posted a photo). I have continued snapping photos but have found little time to choose, edit and post them, not to mention commenting on other people's photos. I'm going to try to get better at all of those things as Project 365 progresses.

One of the challenges I face is that my life is both busy and routine. I don't vary that routine much these days and, even if I do, I'm not finding the time to capture things in photographs. I'm sure many of you feel the same way...I feel I'm recycling themes and subjects a lot these days. My resolution for myself is try to seek out a little more variety.

I will not post 60 photos here today. If you want to see the last two months' worth of my photos, you can find me on Flickr as Snapped Ps. (I'll be uploading them there over the next few days.) I will, however, try to post here more regularly, starting now. And to visit your spaces more often.

I hope you're all well and healthy and snapping away.
